When your teeth start to chatter, your nose hits Rudolph status, and your hands turn into popsicles, you know it's time to invest in a quality winter coat. But securing budget-friendly winter gear that actually withstands the elements is no easy feat. A warm winter coat under $100 may sound like the unicorn of outerwear, but this cold weather must-have does exist.
It's no secret that some of the coziest winter coats come with hefty price tags. But feeling like a million bucks as you brave the elements doesn't have to cost you a million bucks. When choosing the best winter coat, as long as you consider key elements like insulation, breathability, and waterproofness, you can secure a decent garment for less. And if you play your cards right, you won't even have to sacrifice style in favor of function. After all, when it's already blistering cold outside, having to drown your body in oversized, unattractive outerwear will make venturing outdoors even more of a miserable experience.
When it comes to the the Uniqlo Lightweight Down Hood Coat, however, warm, affordable outerwear that's actually trendy is just what you'll get.
For just 99 smackaroos, this Uniqlo hooded down coat could be yours just in time for cooler temperature drops. Generally, the higher the down fill count, the warmer a coat will be, all while remaining lightweight and comfortable. So, expect this baby to be a wearable heater.
Made with 90 percent down fill, "nature's best insulator" according to REI, it's sure to keep you warm in the harshest weather conditions. But just in case its down fill can't withstand super wet conditions, a water-repellant exterior gives it the ability to handle rain or snow like a boss.
For added warmth, fleece-lined pockets provide maximum comfort for your hands — quite a nice touch. Plus, a detachable, faux fur hood, makes the garment a lifesaver for your head, too. In chilly temps, you could use all the coverage you can get, so a coat that stretches down to the knees like this baby is guaranteed to keep your entire upper body cozy.
